March for Meals 2019

The month of March mobilizes hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs  across the country to reach out to their communities and build the  support that will enable them to serve America's seniors all year long.  The 17th annual March for Meals campaign gave the businesses,  organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously  in their communities an opportunity to support homebound seniors in a  variety of ways to make America stronger and healthier.

 “The month of March is a fitting time to not only celebrate the  successful history of Meals on Wheels, but also bring us together to  support a solution that will strengthen communities into the future,”  said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO of Meals on Wheels America.  “With 12,000 Americans turning 60 each day, now is the time to invest in  these vital programs so that we can provide every senior in need with  the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that will enable  them to live healthier and independent in their own homes.”
